Michael Jackson's son Prince has posted a copy of a group message on an iPhone to prove that he and his siblings were denied access to their grandmother, Katherine.
Shortly after 82-year-old Jackson issued a statement in an exclusive interview on ABC, that she was "good and fine" in a group accompanied by several of her children including Janet, Prince proved that when he demanded to see her via text message, his aunt Janet replied "Don't let them pls."

The screenshot of the text, which has since been deleted, proves that the phone chat occurred on Monday at 4:52 pm. The text conflicts Randy Jackson's stating that the kids could see her anytime.
Randy Jackson appeared on MSNBC's "Politics Nation," in an interview with Rev. Al Sharpton the day after the text was sent. He was there to explain why there was an altercation between Janet and Paris which was recorded and shown on CNN.
"We are a family first. I want you to know that," Randy told Sharpton. "Yesterday we did go to the home to let Paris and Prince know that they can visit with or talk to their grandma at any time. We felt someone was trying to twist the story that we were denying them access to their grandma."
Prince sent this extensive text thanking his fans before he released the photo:
"I would first like to start off this tweet by thanking the fans that have always stood by me and my family, my dad really appreciated your support and I still treasure it to this day. As I am sure everyone is well aware of the events that have been going on. I have been holding off on backing up my sister and her tweets avidly because I was waiting for the time to reveal my side.
"As long as I can remember my dad had repeatedly warned me of certain people and their ways. Although I am happy my grandma was returned, after speaking with her I realized how misguided and how badly she was lied to. I'm really angry and hurt. The following image is of a group chat I had started to several family members. This group text message I had started was replied to but they didn't know that I could see the responses. For this whole time, they denied us contact to our grandmother. "If you continue with your lies I will continue with the truth."

Prince sent the text shortly after his sister Paris, 14, tweeted she was happy her grandmother was back in California: "grandma's here ! #thankyougod <33."
Marlon Jackson also tweeted: "she look good and she sound great."
The text messages came a day after a judge granted their older cousin T.J. Jackson guardianship over Prince, Paris and "Blanket."
According to Daily Mail, Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff issued the ruling because their grandmother had not been in contact with the children while staying at the Miraval Resort in Tucson, Arizona.
Katherine Jackson responded to the court order by telling ABC in an exclusive interview that the court ruling was "based on a bunch of lies."
